Josh and I squared off tonight playing refused flank with secure targets. Josh's dice hated him, dwarfs dispelled the magic he did get through, he failed a charge with great swords effectively blocking his knights from the combo charge, a unit of pistoliers ran up and shot the forest around my vengeance seeker and then he chased them down on my charge phase, the center combat lasted a few rounds with great swords and knights making it on the 2nd attempt but then getting charged in the rear from my remaining hold guardians and the front from a unit of handgunners to break the knights, which the handgunners ran down, lastly the hold guardians and greybeards took the great swords down and Josh extended his hand.

My dice were hot, I did fail 2 charges but I ran down a few units with box cars and Josh's empire brought foam swords.

Mvp to his rocket battery that put a massive hurt on my hold guardians before they could get into charge range

My mvp I will give to the vengeance seeker for jumping out of a bush and scaring his pistoliers to death then running to take out a second unit of knights with a flank charge.

Ended in a 22- 0 for me as I took secondary plus 2 for being painted. I forget if Josh was fully painted.

Sounds like Josh got his butt kicked.

As a matter of fact so did I last night affraid

I went to Pete's and our warbands clashed in nothing that resembled a titanic clash pale affraid

Pete Warriors of the Dark Gods vs Derek Warriors of the Dark Gods.

We played 2000pts - tourney warm-ups baby.

We rolled up the Counter-thrust Scenario with Spoils of War as the secondary.

Pete has a nice looking and very nasty Warriors of the Dark Gods Army - he went with the Favor of Pride while I took the Favor of Wrath.

Pete had a Magical Giant, Unit of Warriors with halberds, Warhounds, Barbarian Horsemen, unit of Chosen Knights and Apprentice Sorcerer that had the Magical Heirloom so he had 3 spells. I took the same list from my last report and I had Hellfire from my Giant and my icon of the Infinite which my Warriors possessed.

It was a quick battle. The battlefield had a hill on Pete's side and a forest and I had a ruin on my side.

He placed his Chosen Knights on his right between the forest and table edge with his Sorcerer behind them and the Warhounds in his center then his Giant on the far left with his Warriors of Pride and Barbarian Horsemen to the Giants right. I placed my Warriors across from the Chosen Knight, with my Giant on their right. Across from the enemy Giant I placed my Barbarian Horsemen and in the center I placed my block of Barbarians with my Chieftain as my General then my Warrior Chariot.

On turn one I moved forward and he decisively dispelled my attempts at magic. On his turn one he charged his Barbarian Horsemen into the flank of my Chariot I was not concerned about the Horsemen. He moved his Giant and Warriors up and chaffed up my Warriors with his Warhounds. In his magic phase he wiped out my Barbarian Horsemen with the Breath of Corruption from his Giant and his Sorcerer did 5 wounds to my Giant with the Hellfire spell. Ouch affraid In combat my Chariot did two wounds and the Horsemen held.
Turn two came and feeling the loss of my Horsemen and the imminent demise of my Giant I felt that I had to move. I charged my Giant into the Chosen Knights hoping to get lucky and slow them down, I did not want to sit in the open and get slapped with more Hellfire. My Barbarians charged the enemy barbarians engaged with my Chariot and my Warriors charged the Warhounds chaffing them. I had no magic as my spell units were in combat. My Giant was raped by the Chosen Knights as my Warriors tore through the Warhounds. My Barbarians took out the enemy Barbarians and my Chariot and Barbarians pivoted for future action. On his turn two his Chosen charged and failed onto the my Chariot and his Giant moved up to lash out with magic. In the following turn my Chariot and Barbarians charged his Warriors and my Warriors and the Chosen got into it. Despite the charge and both of my units going first I did not kill enough Warriors - I killed 8 I believe and while his Warriors did a wound tot he Chariot and killed 14 Barbarians. I broke and he ran down my Chariot. My Warriors did not fair well against the Chosen Knights. I had 24 attacks, had 18 hits but only got 1 unsaved wound through while 8 of my Warriors perished. I broke and was run down. In the following turn my remaining Barbarians were chased down....all done pale affraid pale

Pete's army list is solid and will do well in the tourney. His Chosen Knights command attention and then he still can slap you with the Warriors and magic. I don't think I really had anything that could match-up against his units. My Warriors are only strength 4 - that will change and my magic has S 7 hits but no AP. I needed to be on fire with my dice and I wasn't. Well done Pete - solid list and you played it really well.

Pete Warriors of the Dark Gods 17 vs Derek Warriors of the Dark Gods 3
When I was wiped from the battlefield nobody had the secondary objectives.
Pete 19 vs Derek 5 both of us were fully painted.

Did they kill the Pistoliers or scare them? Vengeance seekers don't cause Terror anymore. You'd be forgiven as the rules change constantly, but just making sure. Doesn't sound like it'd change the game much anyways, lol.

It was quite the clash that Derek and I had and I look forward to facing off against his tweaked list! (Great Weapon Wrath Warriors with Lightning reflexes...eep.) The battle was indeed quick and bloody and while I do feel like it's a very strong list and I played well, the dice were heavily in my favour from the get go. That first magic phase alone was devastating!

Also my warriors were actually armed with hand weapons and spiked shields, not halberds. I considered switching out for halberds but the spiked shields come at no cost and are definitely showing some value.

While technically everything I fielded was painted the Chosen Knights still need some highlighting done and several things need snow and grass on their bases so I don't think I can accept the fully painted points. Razz
